    Well clearly you don't try it on anyone who can fight back

    Can't agree with your first point, ETA, it's clear that you don't live on a shrinking income. I do, and while I can and will, if at all possible, keep dogs, it will be at the expense of something else. I'm not on the breadline, but many elderly dog owners are, and, for some of them any extra expense will be a burden. In this case an unnecessary one.
    I do, however, agree with the second. The dog licence has never worked properly in the past, as ever, the law-abiding bought theirs, nobody else did. And it still cost the country money, which was why it was dropped in the first place.

    This is our little shite-hound, when people ask what breed he is I usually say Shite-hound , I said that to someone and he replied "oh that's that Japanese breed isn't it?

    Once they get that I say "Middlesbrough Terrier", (after all he is a terrier and he comes from Middlesbrough), someone thought that sounded like a very dangerous breed of dog

    He also walks with a limp and runs on three legs because he's got no road sense and was knocked down in Middlesbrough before we got him. Allegedly he is a Jack Russell crossed with a Whippet.

    My last dog was a Labrador/Boxer bitch named Kipper. A lovely natured dog and a real character.When my first wife died 20 years ago Kipper was my closest companion during the dark times.Devoted ( she hated any girlfriends) , a friendly face to come home to, and a companion on long walks which were never long enough for her.

    Hi all,

    Always been more of a pussy man myself !!! - Sorry couldn't resist that.

    I grew up owning dogs and cats and have a soft spot for both. I still have 2 cats, Smudge and Charlie.

    Never mind micro-chipping dogs, I'd like to be able to micro - chip dogshit and then it could be returned to its rightful owner along with the fine !!

    Cheers,

    Del.
